Controvento Limite Acque Sicure Rosso 2021

The Limite Acqui Sicure is a blend of red and white grapes: Montepulciano, Passerina, and Trebbiano. Its cheeky name means “safe waters limit,” or “this is where the safe zone ends, risk death by shark if you swim out any further.” Given that almost half of it is made with white grapes, this wine has a racy acidic spine that is balanced by fresh herbs and a salty finish. This wine pushes the limits, and so you should eat it with something that does the same. Try it paired with a movie night and french fries made with a generous portion of crispy sage and rosemary and a side of aioli.
